Wearable Sensing Supports IEEE Brain Hackathon

Sept 10-11, 2016. San Diego, CA, USA, and October 8-9, Budapest, Hungary.

In an effort to promote innovation and enterpreneurship in neurotechnology, the IEEE Brain Iniative hosted three Brain-Computer Interface (BCI) hackathons. One in San Diego, CA, USA, one in Philadelphia, PA, USA, and one in Budapest, Hungary.

Hackathons are competitions where creative minds collaborate in teams competing to produce innovative and useful solutions in a short period of time. The BCI hackathons aimed to develop innovative real-time applications of brain signals acquired from the brain or body.

Wearable Sensing was proud to contribute the use of a DSI-7 unit for the San Diego and Budapest Hackathons. The DSI-7 is uniquely well suited for applications that require rapid donning and set-up, without compromising signal quality and user comfort.

Wearable Sensing Presents Dry Electrode EEG Headsets for All Ages

June 2, 2016. Asilomar Conference Center, Pacific Grove, California.

Wearable Sensing exhibited its Dry Sensor Interface (DSI) technology at the BCI 2016 Meeting, held at Asilomar Conference Center, Pacific Grove, California, USA.

At a Workshop titled "BCI Research and Development for Children" Dr. Walid Soussou, President of Wearable Sensing and CEO of QUASAR, presented the latest developments in DSI technology in a talk titled: "High Fidelity Dry Sensor EEG for all Ages". During the presentation, a 7-channel dry sensor EEG headset (DSI-7) was demonstrated on a 2.5 year old boy. The headset was donned in less than a minute (before the video could even start!), and clean EEG signals can be seen even when the child is walking (as long as he is not touching the headset).

Wearable Sensing plans to launch new child-sized headsets later in 2016.

Neurable demonstrates Wearable Sensing-based BCI for Children with Cerebral Palsy at South by Southwest (SXSW)

March 17, 2015. Austin, TX.

At a new division of SXSW, the SX Health and MedTech Expo, Brain Computer Interface (BCI) designers at Neurable demonstrated a BCI designed to assist children with cerebral palsy score better on vocabulary tests. Mr. Ramses Eduardo Alcaide, co-founder of Neurable, presented the technology at a conference workshop on the Future of Human-Computer Interaction.

The Neurable team interfaced their user-friendly BCI software with Wearable Sensing's high-quality dry EEG headset, the DSI-24 and conducted live demonstrations at SXSW, the children were aided in scoring better on the Peabody Picture Vocabulary Test, a special vocabulary test used for students with physical impairments such as those seen with cerebral palsy.

The joint project was very well-received at the SX Health and MedTech Expo, with Medical Design Technology Magazine naming it number 2 in their Top 5 Medical Devices from SXSW 2015. MedCity News describe the technology presented at SXSW in greater detail in an online article, which was later picked up by Rehab management.

RedBull uses Wearable Sensing's DSI-7-Flex for Recording EEG during Surfing

November 7, 2014. Santa Monica, CA.

In the summer of 2014, Red Bull, approached Wearable Sensing with an exciting challenge – to collect EEG from a surfer riding the waves in the ocean – and Wearable Sensing gladly accepted the challenge to keep our dry electrodes dry in this unique setting! Our engineers custom water-proofed a DSI-7-Flex to fit under a swim cap and flew to Mexico where they met up with the Red Bull team, and surfer Jake Marshall.

Jake donned our wireless customized DSI-7-Flex system and with a laptop strapped to his back, caught some waves while recording EEG data transmitted by our wireless Bluetooth digitizer. The team was successful at recording 17 minutes of clean artifact-free EEG data while Jake was surfing. The data is being analyzed by researchers at Cornell for markers of "flow" and "being in the zone".

 

.

The goal of the Red Bull Surf Science project is not to revolutionize the way we approach surfing, or even try to elevate it to the next level. Instead, the objective is to further advance the technology that is being developed, and test it in the harshest conditions possible. If this technology can work and produce credible results, its results will hopefully improve athlete performance, not only in the water but with other sports as well. Red Bull hopes that collaborations such as this, using application of state-of-the-art science and technology, can help coaches and athletes better understand and adopt what drives optimal performance.

See RedBull's report for more information on the project and a range of technologies pushed to the limits! Wearable Sensing is proud to be a contributor to such cutting-edge, technologically challenging projects.

Synaptic Design uses Wearable Sensing's DSI-7 for Mind Powered Robot Arm Wrestling

May 20-23, 2014. Knoxville, TN.


@

Destination Imagination's Global Finals 2014 brought over 8,000 innovative kids and teens from across the world to compete in teams and showcase their challenge solutions.
Synaptic Design
's booth had wander quests to complete for a collectible pin; a Makerbot 2 3D printer; a multi-color LED filled neuron balloon; a microcontroller workshop; a tesla coil, oscilloscope, and various other machines to show everyone how we do what we do.

On main display were our imagination powered arm wrestling bots, linked to Dry Sensor Interface EEG headsets provided by Wearable Sensing. Kids used their imagination--focusing on lifting, pushing, pulling, and grasping--to direct their robotic arm to victory. The kid whose signal improved most over time would win the bout to the cheers and applause of the crowd. (more info)



Wearable Sensing on UT San Diego TV

December 9, 2013. San Diego, CA.

Our Wearable Sensing's technology was featured on UT San Diego TV's Taylor Baldwin show. Dr. Walid Soussou discussed the innovative Wearable Sensing's technology and the wide range of medical and non-medical applications that it opens. Taylor then donned a DSI-24 and demonstrated how this technology could be used as Brain-Computer Interface: Her EEG data was streamed to BCI2000, an open-source BCI speller developed at the Wadworth Center in Albany, NY, and she demonstrated the technology by spelling her name using her brain's P300 signals.
